said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get away from that. the dream that act does not hurt me. i want my brothers and sisters to have the dream act, but also to understand, i want as a woman, as an african-american. i want an african-american woman on the supreme court. we will then get to where we want to go. >> you mentioned -- latin decisions and a poll that came up with, which showed that he knows our elderly -- overwhelmingly fund of the president and not fond of the other party. it is not that one party is so great over the other. it really is that

have to go, but there's a poll that the latest read of latinos is 72% favor the president. is that needle going to change? >> let me tell you, that's a poll of latinos across america. there's a massive number of la latino voters in california and new york. those states are not in contention. what about the latinos in florida, virginia, north carolina, colorado -- neil: president's up in florida. >> here's the appointment, the gap is closer. neil: really? >> in fact, florida, i think mitt romney is going to win the latino vote. neil: florida itself? >> florida itself shows it's a 1-point rate, a tie, and president obama won florida last time by four points. that means there's people in florida that voted for him the last time that are not going to vote for him now. that's a trend. i think that's a good trend for us. neil: senator rubio, thank you very much, very much. >> good so see you. neil: you have throngs following you, they are my fans, but, no, that was not the case. peter barnes is out there in -- i don't know if you're in the spin room formally or the alley. where

're probably not going to win there. and one of the primary reasons is because latinos in that state are just fed up with republicans. not so much on rhetoric, but because of the policies how do you fix that in your party and how frustrated are you? >> i'm not quite sure if it is policies and i'll tell you why. remember that the president's been very good. he promised in his first 12 months, he gave his word, to the country, and to the latino population in the country in particular that within the first 12 months he was going to do comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't do it. but by the way, look, look at senator reid's election. he did exceedingly well latino population because he promised he was going to present and pass the dream act. he did it. he did a version of it, by the way, without talking to anybody else. but then after that, after the election, he doesn't mention it anymore. he doesn't do it anymore. he hasn't even proposed it anymore. so we see this time and time again. so it really is rhetoric. it's not policy. on the policies, look at the increase in poverty. the group of

to the latest fox news latino poll 60% of latinos would pick the democratic ticket right now, 30% would choose the republican nominee. meanwhile one columnist explains how governor romney can avoid lights out tonight. he says and this is a quote, mitt romney must make americans understand in the clearest of terms how he'll create jobs. he needs to finally take his bain experience and turn it into a plus. rick sanchez wrote that column for fox news latino. he's also a fox news contributor. great to see you, rib. not only that poll that we just put up on the screen. the "wall street journal" came out with a poll, the president has a 50-point lead among latinos, why is that. >> the first thing is that's just nothing more than a huge opportunity that has been missed. ao eights a big fat fast ball right across the plate and it just seems like governor romney has not been able to hit out of park. here you have a block of voters. a lot of people don't know this. gregg. 34% of hispanics who arrive in the united states consider themselves conservative. that is higher than most americans who live in the
to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning m
. we're going to start with latinos here. we've got two recent polls that show a conflicting picture on who latinos in florida support for president. a miami herald florida international university poll shows obama beating romney by seven points. but a tampa bay times miami herald poll shows romney up by two points. so you're a member of romney's hispanic steering committee. what are you seeing on the ground as far as latino vote goes? >> the latino community has been hit really, really hard by this recession. if you look at, for example, children in poverty, the largest group of children in poverty are the hispanic latino children in the united states. poverty has increased among latinos. unemployment, frankly, is excessively high. there are no jobs. really in the entire country, and that also stands true for florida. so, when all the rhetoric is said and done, the question is, are -- do our grandchildren and our children deserve this? is this the best the united states can be? or do they deserve, and frankly do we deserve, also, a better future, a better president? that's why i thi
obama is ahead by 50 points among latinos, but their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. that was another aspect of last night. >> glen, my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three- or four- cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a really good question, charlie, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. there is the reason no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. is even more true. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i added a virginia to that list. if they are at the top, the next half level down his north carolina. -- is north carolina. look, clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia to build a very competitive state race now. ohio is a place where he does need a significant comeback. well taken,s are that for many voters, the election started last night. if he is going to
and more diverse. more hispanic. the population is up by 20% since 2000 to more than 5 million. latinos now account for 21% of the population. president obama's strategy is repeating what he did in 2008. his margin of victory was 142,000 votes. 46,000 more votes than kerry got in 2004. they'll also vote on swing accounts that use to be republican. obama put on six counties that bush carried in 2004. including jefferson county. arapahoe. as jefferson county goes, so goes the nation. again, president bush won in 2004 by 9,000 votes. obama won there by more than 34,000 votes. but in 2010 again with a much tighter race. romney's strategy depends on winning the suburbs as well as driving up margins with social conservatives and active military and veterans in colorado springs and the rural areas of the state and doing well with voters here. the swing county like the state as a whole has become more hispan hispanic. colorado is 18% latino. that's up from 11.8% in 2000. the question is whether they cast ballots this time around. so how do voters in denver's swing suburbs known for being independen

about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning machines and paper ballots. hos
the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was a cushion shot in pool. is ohio but we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. is a reason -- i entered this election cycle believing that their word out three key states instead of dust florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list, and then if they are at the top, the next half-level down is where carolina. look, clearly governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. ohio is a place where he doesn't need a significant comeback, and i think fred's points are well taken, which is for a lot of voters the election start
in colorado where last night's debate was held is latinos. they're more optimistic about the economy than nonlatino white voters. still, six in ten latinos say the economy is in poor shape. a separate poll found a majority of latinos think the economy is a more important issue than immigration. so no doubt the latino vote will be key. coming up this weekend, soledad o'brien follows two people in nevada who are trying to tip the scales in their party's favor. watch "latino in america: courting their vote." that is sunday at 8:00 p.m. >> interesting. >>> 43 minutes after the hour. confusion about early voting in the tampa area. the election supervisor says a call from organizing for america, a democratic community organizing group, prompted hundreds of phone calls about early voting. the call was actually about filling out absentee ballots at election offices. early voting, which is different, doesn't start until the 27th in florida. >>> issue number one in america, jobs. who has them and who can create them? cnn fact checking both candidates' claims about the job market. that's coming up f

spends talking about for two weeks. african american and latino voters are very important. i want every american to vote. they are not voting for mitt romney. when you look at numbers like are you more favorable about this candidate the president and romney have parallel numbers among white voters. these huge margins are because overwhelmingly 78 to 4 african americans are saying less likely. if you are losing 100% of the vote it doesn't effect the ballot. so the difference in this poll is you have to look at the valid coalition compared to the numbers you are using from this survey. that explains how you can have the negative numbers from romney and have him going up in the poll compared to two weeks ago mpt. >> i want to go to candidate qualities thmpt president has leads on looking after the middle class, dealing with immigration and medicare. single digit on health care, being a good commander in chief, foreign policy and taxes. of all of those qualities, the two that would concern you the most if you were mitt romney? >> the one you didn't mention is mitt romney is ahead on changin

gingrich campaign senior advisor david winston and nbc latino contributor, a senior fellow at the university of texas. good morning to both of you. will mitt romney have to and be able to defend paul ryan's budget plan at the debate tomorrow? >> clearly, the selection of paul ryan was an intent to give, sort of fill out this alternative. how was mitt romney going to be an alternative to whatever president obama's policies were. that was a strategic shift from it being just simply a referendum on the president. it's not, it wasn't so much does he have to defend everything paul ryan did? it's how does paul ryan supplement what mitt romney is going to say in terms of how he offers this alternative and what we are going to see in terms of the debate is how the campaign decides to define that. >> paul ryan the last couple of days has taken a lot of criticism for his interview on fox news sunday when chris wallace grilled him how he paid for a 20% tax cut he and mitt romney proposed. he had no details. he was asked the question six or seven times. to be fair, has either side real
is not just the latino vote but immigration. i have a quick clip i want to play from the way mr. romney responded to a question, a very conservatively worded question. a woman asking about what the candidates would do about people who don't have green cards but who are productive members of the society. this is mr. romney's response in part. >> i will not grant amnesty. i'll put in place an employment verification system and make sure employers who hire people who come here illegaly sanctioned for doing so. so for instance, i would not give driver's licenses to those who have come here illegally, as the president would. the kids of those that came here illegally. those kids should have a pathway to become a permanent resident. >> on that specific issue mr. romney promised to veto the dream act. president obama took it to him on that issue. >> i think it was a big missed opportunity when talking to latinos particularly in nevada and colorado. much of the answer was formulated on what he's not going to do. what he's going to oppose as to what he's going to do for the community. to underst
that we've got the latino locked up, we've got the women locked up we can then throw latina women over whelmingly the domestic workers under the bus. jerry brown should not have vetoed that bill. it's democrats taking advantage of the fact that right now latinos and women don't feel they can go to the republican party. the sickness in the republican party on these issues is -- jerry brown should be ashamed of himself. >> don't you think that's a broader pattern in the democratic party? >> it could be. >> you have social issues a lot of places are trumping economic issues. even in new york andrew cuomo maybe signed the bill you're describing, but when cuomo wants to shore up his base, he does gaye marriage and when he wants to come to the marriage, this is something economic liberals should be concerned about that social liberalism is sort of the only liberalism that really matters. >> and i'm delighted that van brought jerry brown up. one, i think van is right. the democratic party does take advantage of its constituencies. i would argue it's taken advantage of latinos for a long time.
the numbers it shows that key parts of president obama's coalition african-americans, latinos, are actually putting a high importance on the debates which actually kind of shows the challenge that mitt romney has to actually get his side as enthusiastic about it. >> a shrinking group of undecided voters, chris cizilla, what is the strategy of both sides to reach those people who are still undecided? >> you saw the clip you played with mitt romney in colorado, president obama on sunday night in las vegas, both basically what they both said is the media wants this to be a back and forth brawl, we're going to be serious and focus on the issues because they understand that when it comes to undecided voters, tend to be people, not always, politically independent. those kind of people don't like the nastiness, the back and forth. partisans love that. but independents don't like it. the messaging is i'm a serious person, these are serious times, and we need someone who has the ability, capacity, demonstrated record to lead. so i actually think both of them will be kind of the serious and sober pol
latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the hispanic community is obviously a young community, it's a growing community, it's a community that's going to register to vote more in line with their population numbers in years to come. republicans simply cannot lose the hispanic vote by 40, 50 points. they can't even lose it by 20 points. people like jeb bush, marco rubio who you showed earlier they understand that. i think the party needs to have a reckoning with where they are in immigration and courting hispanics. numbers like that, mitt romney maybe can win with a number like that, possibly nationally, but i will tell you in 2016, 2020 and beyond the party nominee will be hard pressed to win losing hispanic business that kind of margin. >> and finally, how big a deal is joe biden saying that the middle class has been buried for the last four years? >> yeah. >> republicans are going to make a big deal out of it. >> and are making a big deal out of it. web video this morning, you played paul ryan's c
